Visit Sint Maarten and Tickle the Airplanes

There are videos and photos all over the internet…if you know where to look. On the island of Sint Maarten (Saint Martin on the French side), the airplanes are an attraction. And it all happens on the beach at Maho Bay – steps away from the runway at Princess Juliana International Airport.

To get an idea of what it feels like to have a 747 land over your head…well, watch this video of a 747 landing over my head:

It’s an aviation photography paradise. Hope you enjoy this Flickr album of a few of my favorites.
